I recently stumbled across the most fabulous website full of luxurious beach houses and hotels across Australia and South East Asia called Contemporary Hotels and my, does it have some gorgeous offerings just perfect for honeymoons!
Want to stay on Sydney’s gorgeous Palm Beach? How about staying at the Palm Beach Pacific Road House?
Although the house has three bedrooms, I think it’d make a dreamy honeymoon spot. Can you imagine unwinding on that deck? A wheel of fresh creamy Brie cheese in front of you and a glass of chilled wine? Pacific Highway House offers luxuries like Aveda toiletries, large white kitchen, media room, TV & DVD player and a king sized bed.
If you’re a Sydney couple wanting to head a little further North (or just wanting to escape to a beautiful part of the world) you can choose the Byron Bay Villa.
Again the property has a mass of bedrooms (destination wedding perhaps?) but is pure luxury with a lap swimming pool, amazing views, BBQ, wet and lounging areas, TV, CD and DVD player, air conditioning, Aveda toiletries and three gorgeous bathrooms.
Next on my dream honeymoon list is Kangaroo Island Villa, Kangaroo Island
Amazing, rugged coastline views? Check! King tower room? Check! Conversation pit with open fire? Check! Open fire place? Check! Oh and is full service accommodation (including transfers, gourmet chef, food deliveries, all beverages (including alcohol) activities (including dining with the kangaroos and evening croquet), private beach gazebo, on call transport and housekeeping) available? Triple check! Dreamy honeymoon destination? I think we’re on a winner!
A little too far away? A little too isolated for your style? Perhaps my next favourite is one for you – Snapper Lodge, Newport
Now if the private dock and red and white lighthouse doesn’t win you over with it’s waterside charm, then I’m not sure what will! Snapper Lodge is situated right on Pittwater – as in the only walking you will need to do on your honeymoon is a hop skip and a jump to your outdoor sun lounge (and perhaps inside again for a gin & tonic). This gorgeous little cottage has all the mod cons – TV, DVD Player, CD player, Aveda toiletries, private jetty, king bed and BBQ without any attitude. It’s the perfect seaside cottage, lovingly restored and cared for by an artist with an eye for detail and only 45 minutes from the city.
That’s not the end of the rental list though, Contemporary Hotels offers up properties in Bedarra Island, Port Stephens, Wombarra, Port Elliot and even for the far flung travelers – the Amalfi Coast.
But that’s not extent of this little wondrous discovery – the website also offers up four gorgeous properties for events. They’re perfect for an intimate wedding or pre – wedding celebration.
